on the ghost of ronald reagan is he could not have survived in the current iteration of the republican party. ronald reagan said no to war with the soviet union. ronald reagan actually said yes to reducing the number of nuclear weapons in both sides arsenal's. ronald reagan was a figure almost more comfortable in barack obama's democratic party and his wing -- >> don't say that too loudly. >> check your twitter feed. >> just exploded. >> we have to take a break but we are waiting for the president to speak at the clinton global initiative. meanwhile, president obama and governor romney also spoke at nbc's education nation summit. big times. we will discuss their remarks. also paul ryan weighs in on the last night's nfl controversy and brings it back to, guess who, president obama. all of that is next on "now." want to try to crack it? yeah, that's the way to do it! now we need a little bit more... a little bit more vanilla? this is great! [ male announcer ] at humana, we believe there's never been a better time to share your passions... because the results... are you having fun doing this? y
't rest there. the last time around, we studied emotion. ronald reagan said of the bill to -- set up the bill to hire the energy commission. california became the leader in energy efficiency. we put in tax credits and policies of the public utilities commission to favor alternative energy, independent power production. which is obvious today. when they promoted code- generation it was something very novel. 30 years ago. now you have a different name for a period in his third party power production using power in a driving way to recapture the most efficient way. innovation is important. i have to also, every time we heard the word innovation, i have to put a plug in for tradition. i have a very traditional education. i spent a lot of years in silence speaking latin up in the hills, living within the medieval framework. i do respect the past. we study it. if you are grounded in tradition, you feel quite confident in change and innovation. if you are insecure, you are very reluctant to embrace the unknown. i do think we need to in our education and politics, we have to have a new appre
about is taxes and all they want to talk about is how bad the government is. i voted for ronald reagan in 1980. i do have a disclaimer. i was drunk that day. but he made -- you know, ronald reagan, one thing he did was he made people distrust their government. and really a lot of people hate their government. because of -- >> now, mud cat, let me ask you a question. let me ask you a question. i didn't want to cut you off. but i have to get to you because i don't want to run out of time on you and steve. i've been waiting all day because i knew you were coming on. i've looked at the polls and i understand group after group the president's establishing a commanding lead. latinos up 45 points. he leads women by 19 points. catholics by 15 points. all of them i could understand given the policy positions of this campaign. but here's one that is right down your alley to explain to me. romney is losing the nascar base, the nascar base. obama leads romney 49-42 among nascar enthusiasts, according to the new zogby poll. can you explain that? >> because thurston howell doesn't drive a car. it's
and say, excuse me, you're not ronald reagan and i knew ronald reagan. i mean, you know, it's absolutely crazy. today we're going to have an nfl football game. can you imagine the opposing team giving the other team the playbook? i mean, he doesn't have that many plays in the book to begin with and now here your advisers are, in essence, giving the obama administration -- giving the obama debate team the play that they are going to run as if this president isn't going to be prepared to counter anything. i don't know what kind of campaign they are running and the last thing i would do is publicize my strategy in the first debate. >> i think you're right. >> the only thing i think more alarming about publishing your strategy before the debate is that they are going at what has been a weak point of mr. romney. i mean, just this week he's had to defend himself against accusation that he's been fast and loose with facts. look at this. >> we've been absolutely spot on and any time there's been anything amiss, we correct it or remove it. >> so the fact that the media has called him on things th
. former assistant of commerce for george h.w. bush and special assistant to ronald reagan. not the best image management. you specialize in crisis management. some compare to marie antoine e antoinette. all these cuts coming on and he's walking around smoking a stogy. >> a woman is a woman, because good cigar is a smoke, i say. >> you you may say that, but doesn't go down very well. >> you can't smoke inside, so i guess he figured he had to take the opportunity. it probably isn't the best image for a national figure to be smoking at all let along in public, let alone during a crisis, let alone on the streets of man hat continue. let's put a positive spin on it. perhaps it is his way of helping control his nerves. >> this is a prime minister that come and has promised all sorts of things when he got elected. once that starts happening, how on earth do you control it from a crisis management pr perspective? >> if we could control it, we'd all be rich. what we tried to do, what i'm sure his advisers are trying to do is to keep him cool, keep him focused. they've made a lot of announcement
to make the case because otherwise you have after ronald reagan, a brief prosperity, but if people don't revise the role of government and ending economy, they don't stabilize in the up and look at a crisis to catalog the right up where we are and the gets bigger. we got to occupy the high moral ground. free markets based in morality, meeting the needs and wants of other people. and enhances the sense of humanity in a way that we don't even realize. that's what we've got to get across because otherwise people say government is inefficient, but by golly, they mean well. no, they don't. they are the very things they accuse private markets have been. >> and "the freedom manifesto" can you talk about one of the political issues of although diverse sources of u. of tennessee eventually get forced to become part of a big company. and so you don't get the microsoft and out on the scale we get in this country. he the 1970s. terrible decade. the wood is emerging, microsoft, charles schwab, southwest airlines, fedex and others because you have a couple system that could nurture, get them to grow
given the possibility of what we saw in 1984 with ronald reagan and in 1980 with ronald reagan and jimmy carter where there really was a mood change. >> sure, but let's also remember that as john made reference to john kerry in 2004, he moved the needle, but he didn't move the needle nearly far enough. and the fact is that in 18 of the last 19 presidential elections whosever been leading at this point has led the popular vote. >> you remember how close kerry came, if he had won a small number in ohio, he would have been president. >> i understand that. >> and also if he had gnat gone windsurfing in nantucket. willie, the thing is, we talk about the 47% video, i'm hearing more and more people in the romney campaign as every day goes by, they understand more and more that they made a huge mistake with that libyan press conference. i'm not going to say that it was sort of that september 15th moment, the economy is sound, but john mccain last time, but i can't tell you how many pollsters are telling me that that was -- it made him look unpresidential. "the wall street journal" leading with t
as a college cartoonist. i sank my teeth on that ronald reagan. that was like having george did the bush in office, because ronald reagan would say crazy stuff. i kind of miss ronald reagan for different reasons than you guys miss him. [laughter] >> we have a question in the front row. >> i am curious. you said you are sometimes considered too political. what does that mean? >> i was speaking in terms of a daily comic strip. we have the issue where if you have a political comic strip, either people will segregate it in another section or the opinion page. i got a great spot right under doonesbury. i am the second strip. just being a latino and being a minority cartoonist, there are not that many of us. almost anything i would say could be considered too political. people just want me to shut up. >> i do a political comic strip, too. you may consider yourself a minority, but i am a french with iranian cartoonist. -- lithuanian cartoonist. >> it is amazing a french person would challenge him. but i want to talk about your comic strips also. lotit came as a reaction to l to croce. i was liv
our thermostats a tad and guzzle a bit less gas. then came ronald reagan who's man great contributions to america were coupled with less great ones, including idea, which has dominate ourd political discourse ever since, that we should speak only of morning in mark and that optimism, like virtue, is its own rewar. it isn't, not if it's crowds out realism. >> let's not read the whole article. you talked to erskine bowles? >> about this? >> i'm saying we talked to him. you talked to erskine bowles, bill clinton's former chief of staff who's in the debt commission. he's scared. he's scared to death. >> about the things we can't say. >> about the fiscal cliff. what we can't say about taxes, what we can't say about cutting the taxes, what we can't say about medicate. >> you can't tell voters they're going to feel pain for anything. >> either side. >> we're not talked to as adults. we're talked to as children, which is our own fault because that's what we've shown here. when you listen to both candidates, it's leak a contest to say you'll less pain under me, you'll feel less pain under me. i
was in the federal government, ronald reagan was president and reagan said the government is not the solution. government is the problem. and he thought it was very funny to say oh, i'm from government and i'm here to help you. that was a good laugh line at a republican meeting. i think the democrats, despite what is going on, have stretched out their plans, barack obama agrees that there would be no taxes in the new budget, just spending cuts. the house democrats and house republicans would not accept that. so i don't think it's the same on both sides, and i think you ought to suggest them also in oklahoma. [laughter] >> i do suggest them in oklahoma and everywhere, all over the country. i think people are going to have different ideas about which party is worse than where they came from. certainly, you mentioned obama's outreach, and i think he did find an outreach. when he did, nancy pelosi said no, we won the election. it is kind of you know, it's kind of hard. some people are saying totally outrageous and nasty things. what we have to do is break it down where people like that can sit do
. it has been growing under obama. it's not explosive growth like ronald reagan had in 1984, able to win 49 states, but it's been slowly growing. you have that and you have another thing that political scientists kind of found there seems to be an advantage the less time your party has been in the white house, the more -- so bush sr. in '92 that's 12 years of republican rule. people are itching for change at that point. four years coming in off what obama inherited is a different situation. >> you know, one thing i would say is that the presidential level and at the gubernatorial level and the senatorial level, people are paying a lot more attention. there's a lot more money involved, seeing the ads, following the debates. when you get further -- at that level i would say the campaigns do matter. romney coming out and making his comments about the 47%, that had an impact. >> huge. >> it had a huge impact. i would say the obama campaign has been very skilled in the way that they framed romney early and also in framing this election in general as not just about the economy, but about the futu
outside the mainstream of even the ronald reagan party. there's a huge problem that romney has to position himself. he was in a position to make it one point obama and his presidency the issue. he's lost that chance by what happened at the convention. >> actually, i think he might have lost that chance when he picked paul ryan as his running mate. >> absolutely. lynn is absolutely right. >> that's -- that is where that turned. before then, i think it was a referendum on obama's tenure as the leader of our economy. >> right. he had bob portman, he had a perfect chance to win ohio to say i'm a centrist mainstream republican. here i am. i told you people on the right where i stand on things. i'm now not going to pick the most radical, both fis fiscally and in terms of physical policy guy in washington of any influence. he went to ryan and he stuck with him now and he brought him nothing, ryan. >> charlie crist, a rmepublican and now independent and he does support president obama. governor, good to see you. to carl's point as well as lynn's and let's talk about this selection of paul ryan. yo
ronald reagan take apart jimmy carter. now, with this caveat, president obama much quicker than jimmy carter. much. however, the way that reagan did it was authoritative, but kind of focusy. i don't know if romney can be folksy. but you got to be bold and fresh out there. but you got to do it with more of a twinkle in your eye than a malice. >> bill, look, why is "the o'reilly factor" and "fox & friends" popular? >> i don't show malice and i'll tell i couldn't. one of these crazy right wing talk show host social security off the air, i understand, savage, isn't he off the air? >> brian: i heard he's having trouble. >> because he's malicious. >> first of all, michael savage, you might not like him, he had millions of people -- >> he's malicious. that's what he is. if romney starts to do that, if people sense that -- >> we're not talking about -- >> i'm sorry, laura, you're wrong. if romney starts to do that without -- >> that's not what -- when has romney ever done that? >> come on, come on. >> you're creating paper tigers, bill. romney, i was in new york last week, and he performed be
that at this point in 1980 ronald reagan was down about ten points in pennsylvania. he went on to take it. and in 1988 george h.w. bush was down at this point in september by about seven. gregg: you know, i mentioned to our viewers a moment ago the coal industry which is very important to pennsylvania. here's a headline from one newspaper in july, and it reads: pennsylvania coal companies announce layoffs. and the executives blame the policies of president obama and his epa. look, is that having an impact at the polls? >> it very well -- it probably will. i mean, you know, the polls are what they are, but there's a lot of people are angry and upset at the obama administration policies and what it's doing to coal. listen, there's a -- the southwest part of the state, a very coal-dependent economy. now, cross-cutting against that is, as you know, the obama campaign has been really forceful in portraying mitt romney as like this rich, you know, out of touch plutocrat -- gregg: right. >> -- private equity guy, so there's cross-pressures on a lot of these guys between, you know, like, anger ov
thinking, hey, ronald reagan said something kind of wacky, that'll destroy his presidency, it didn't. my advice to the romney campaign, we should write blogposts and say, hey, can you believe obama said that? the romney campaign needs to criticize president obama's policies and say what they would do instead. jon: so you're saying that they need to be more forward looking instead of looking in the rearview mirror every week? >> yes. i think if you look at the polls in detail, if you look at the inside, some of the questions, people aren't happy with the way the country is, but they're not similarly willing to say -- simply willing to say things are so horrible that whoever replaces him is going to be better. and people still blame president bush for the meltdown, so romney has a task, more subtle, complicated and challenging task, really, than i think his own campaign thought. they thought don't make mistakes, be acceptable, we'll win. it's not proving to be that simple which means that the camr challenge of making a positive change for their ayen da. i think they can do it, but they nee
of the next three debates, does somebody put their foot in their mouth? i always remember regular ronald reagan saying there you go again. so we'll see if it's just a muddle for both sides. >> some memorable lines from debate history. thank you. you can find a think jamie's blog at ktvu.com. go to the -- link to jamie's blog at ktvu.com. go to the politics page. >>> governor jerry brown had a busy weekend. coming up for you at 7:48. the bills he just signed into law including one some say will make california streets safer. >>> well, starting today, shopping in san francisco means you have to bring your own bag or get charged for one by the store. the checkout bag ordinance takes effect today at almost all retailers. >> the stores cannot offer plastic bags and if you want a compostable bag you will be charged. >>> hot weather may have played a role in an elderly woman's death in contra costa county. the 86-year-old's body was found at an elementary school. police say the woman had been reported missing in concord a few hours earlier. the exact cause of death is still unclear. but police
it happened was not more than a few blockks at st. patrick's katherine and ronald reagan and george bush against walter mondale and geraldin ferraro. a practicing catholic. no roman catholic can vote for mondale. did thires come after him. of course not. >> steve: the catholic church is describing an educational campaign. where they are talking about the contraceptive man date where cath lickk organizations have to provide birth control. rather than saying vote for the other guy because this is barack obama. you have to connect the dots. >> this is already the law. tax exempt does not interfere with the ability to change the law . you didn't hear anything from cardinal dolloon. when the legislation made its way throughh congratulation you only hear his outrage and that is lawful for him to blast >> a lot of the preachers don't know about the i.r.s. law. i love this topic. media matters with the department of justice. they are tax exempt organization and whether or not they should be allowed to continue in that statuous. >> media matters has the same tax exemption as the religious groups
the other way. >> in the old days people voted aspirational. democrats voted for ronald reagan. i'm just wondering about whether the aspiration is enough to put a candidate over the top at this point? >> i think the reality of our economic station, with 23 million people unemployed, 47 million people on food stamps, i think the american people are going to wake up and say, you know, president obama came in with great promise. he's a heck of a nice guy. but nice guys don't always get the job done. and he's not getting the job done. >> all right. we'll see. we hope to see you again. i don't know if we'll see you before november 6th, but thanks for coming in today. >> thanks for having us. thank you. >> and good luck with, you know, you doing all the prenatal stuff as a surrogate that you need to do? >> absolutely. >> very good. any vitamins? what else, becky? >> vitamins is the big thing. the diet. >> "boardwalk empire." pasturized milk. >>> we've got to run. make sure you join us tomorrow. "squawk on the street" starts right now. ♪ hey give me everything tonight ♪ ♪ give me everythi
giraldi who used to work, i think, for ronald reagan, but i just want to tell you -- ask you is there a way, are you doing anything to get into the debate cycle with obama and romney? >> host: we had a similar question, governor johnson, via twitter. what do you say? >> guest: well, right now i'm excluded from the first debate. the commission that determines who gets in the debates is the presidential debate commission, and guess what? the presidential debate commission is private, and they're made up of republicans and democrats with absolutely no interest whatsoever in seeing a third voice on stage. we have filed three lawsuits to get me on stage based on other third-party candidates who have filed lawsuits. there doesn't seem to be, there doesn't seem to be much hope, but we filed on anti-trust grounds, something that has not been done before. >> host: how much do these debates matter, gary johnson, and what are you looking forward to hearing on wednesday? >> guest: well, the debates are tantamount to my having a chance at winning. without being on the debates, i think tha
't think it's a lack of training, or depth. the idea that this was the worst recession, i think ronald reagan inherited a much worse situation. much higher unemployment, much higher interest rates, much higher crime levels. but this is how they set it up. you set it up to a point where bill clinton said, no one could fix i. but i think if there was a republican in office, we would hear this is a crisis, unemployment over 8%, and if you take the nine million people who dropped out of the job market since inauguration day, it'd be closer to 12%. the fact that we're not seeing this is disingenuous and a disservice to the general public. >> yeah, it's really bad, and partly it's the policies. we're doing a lot of things similar to what happened in japan, and there's a joke that used to go around japan, what's the difference between japan and taiwan, at least one company goes bust in taiwan every day, and in japan that wasn't happening -- alisyn: because of stimulus? >> no, they were propping up bad companies. alisyn: bailouts. >> in this country we've got banks that are going bust not beca
campaigns decide to lay out the difficult details. remember this, ronald reagan ran for re-election and there were vague illusions to tax reform. did he layout a tax reform plan? he did not. they passed tax reform in 1986. so of course journalists will press for details because it is difficult to make plans up. we can't know precisely how the obama administration proposes to raise the top corporate rate to on 28%. we don't know how mitt romney proposes to lower the corporate rate to 20%, 25%, i forget which one, because they haven't identified the loopholes. >> but that's linchpin of the whole campaign is around taxes, is around lowering taxes and is around -- >> actually, it's not. actually, it's not because if you remember, andrew, in his convention speech, he didn't especially mention his individual tax cut. and he went out on the road last week and said by the way, i'm going to cut tax rates, but don't expect a big tax cut because i'm going to take away deductions. so romney in fact and i've talked to romney's strategists about this, they know that voters don't actually
't told us how he's going to get the corporate rate down either. so a lot of this stuff, ronald reagan ran for president in 1984 said i want to do tax reform. he didn't have a plan, he came up with his plan and passed it two years later. >> there are a fair number of specifics out from both candidates. we're trying to parch them or compare them. >> well, some people in the media. there's a lot of media. and so different people do different things. i think there's more policy analysis available to people in all of the iterations of media. >> i think this would be the best platform for debate. do we have chuck yet, alex? >> he's not -- >> oh, good. new polls out from quinnipiac university show president obama with a narrow lead heading into wednesday's debate. president obama leading 49% among likely voters. but when it comes to women, president obama has stretched a lead to 18 points, 56% to 38%. the gap tightens when it comes to which candidate would better handle the economy, just one point separates them. when asked who would win tomorrow night's debate, the president nearly doubles mitt
look 12. i got this. i was in the hotel room with ronald and nancy reagan, shouldn't you be doing your homework? i have the voice then that i have now, more or less, and i learned to play back. i would invariably show up without a pad and somebody would have to find me a pen. i can take my little boats and as my little questions. but now that does not happen. i am't have any sense that treated differently because i am a woman at this stage. >> it does happen. i have covered members of congress on capitol hill that think it is ok for them to put their arm around you while you are asking a question. there is a certain way that they treat you when you are young bird. -- younger. one thing that is interesting with the news hour, we do these interviews and they are among the best of the business. it is important to go back to your question, you don't have to print something that is not true at understanding that, having that confidence in yourself that someone gave me a complete line and i don't have to throw it in there because you need balance. you can do the truth finding yourself. it is
